I have a MPX100, and it's got some terrific reverbs. I'm just finishing a
CD for a local pop band, and while I'd normally rent a PCM-80 or -90 for
the final mixes, on this project, because of cost, I just used the MPX.
Sounded great. Every preset on the box sounds good, unlike Alesis or Zoom
or other similarly-priced boxes that may have 1-2 great sounds and the rest
crap. I think I paid $229 for mine, which is slightly above your price
range, but it's really worth it.
